P Ramkumar, the suspected killer of Infosys engineer S Swathi, was brought to Chennai where a magistrate remanded him in judicial custody for 15 days.
Amid tight security, 24-year-old P Ramkumar was brought in an ambulance from Tirunelveli Government Medical College Hospital with a medical team and police escort and admitted to the Government Royapettah Hospital in the early hours.
Ramkumar was held on July 1 from his house in T Meenkakshipuram village in Tirunelveli district in connection with the June 24 sensational murder of S Swati at Nungambakkam railway station.
He had attempted suicide by slashing his neck when surrounded by police following which he was undergoing treatment at the Tiruneveli hospital.
Tirunelveli First Judicial Magistrate Ramadoss had yesterday visited Ramkumar at the hospital in Tirunelveli and gave authorisation to bring him here with police security and medical personnel.
Ramkumar allegedly killed Swathi after she resisted his attempt to befriend her. He had also reportedly told Swathi that he was in love with her, which she rejected.
